"The explicit opposition to a social phenomenon inevitably manifests as a synthetic form of that which it ostensibly opposes." - Bryce Laliberte
The first time I ran across a "feminist" I was 18 years old and in my first year of college. She was plain, overweight but not obese, and once in class she said, "I'm not going to support any man." I remember thinking, "You can't get any man."
The way she was acting and thinking was clearly a reaction to her unpopularity with men.
Before that, in high school, I ran across guys (fortunately, not all that many) who were all bragging about all the girls they had screwed, when they hadn't screwed any. As far as I'm concerned, the more someone brags about what they are, the less they have to brag about. Bluff and a big mouth to cover up they're as hollow as a balloon.
The way they were acting and thinking was clearly a reaction to their unpopularity with women.
When someone isn't getting what they think they should be getting, sometimes they get grandiose, to cover up their feelings of humiliation. It's a pretty common defense mechanism.
These days, I occasionally read articles (always from people who know nothing about genetics) about "superior Alpha sperm" and "inferior Beta sperm." My first thought is that these guys live in their parents' basement, are probably overweight neckbeards, and don't get laid at all. People who make such comments clearly aren't their idealized "alphas" and are closer to being those despised "omegas."
It's not original with me (in fact it's a quite old philosophical position) that the thoughts in our head are not reality - which to me seems obvious. The closer they are to "reality" the better they work. The better life is.
This means the Alpha-to-Omega hierarchy is not reality. They are thoughts in our heads that we impose on reality. So how well do they work? Not all that well.
For one thing, all of us are narcissistic. It's inborn. Some are a lot more narcissistic than others.
Narcissism, to make it as simple as possible, is when we use feelings of grandiosity to cover up our feelings of shame and humiliation. Everyone does it. In other words, those who think they are "Alphas" with their "superior Alpha sperm" and who think there are "Betas" or "Gammas" or "Omegas" (with their corresponding "inferior sperm") are using grandiosity to cover up their own self-loathing, their own shame, and their own feelings of humiliation. "I am not one of those loathsome, inferior Betas, Gammas, Omegas....I am an Alpha, Sieg Heil!"
None of this mystifying nonsense was around when I was a kid. So how did it happen?
Which is not about equality, but female superiority (grandiosity) and therefore about humiliating and shaming men. So men are reacting with their own grandiosity to cover up their own feelings of shame, humiliation and inadequacy. Hence the belief in grandiose "Alphas," who are apparently supposed to be a combination of such juvenile fantasies as James Bond and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Since none of these guys are "Alphas" they have to project all their own shame and humiliation onto "Betas" and the rest of those "inferiors." It's called scapegoating...and it's a form of human sacrifice.
You know - sacrificing to Moloch. To obtain safety and stability and to be "reborn" (sacrifice is always a fertility rite). And "self-esteem," which I define as the confidence that comes from being competent. Not pretending you're superior with pretty words like "Alpha." (I define an "Alpha" as being the best you can be - excellence in life, which is how the Greeks defined flourishing/well-being over 2500 years ago.)
In other words, the only way the concept of "Alpha" can exist is to project all "badness" onto the Betas, Gammas, Omegas. Hence the "superior Alpha sperm" and the "inferior" non-Alphas.
Projection is the first defense the mass of people engage in -"it's somebody else's fault!" - and with it always goes grandiosity, which is why every tribe in the world has called itself "the People" or "the Human Beings" or claimed God is on its side.
And when a certain class of men claim that the "true nature of women" is that they are conscienceless gold-digging sluts and whores who are so weak they have no ability to resist "Alphas"...what does that say about these men and their insecurity and feelings of humiliation and their attempts to compensate by degrading and devaluing women?
The whole scenario of "alphas" at the top (a priest class, apparently) with everyone below them inferior and disposable, fits the model of a primitive religion...and again, including its version of human sacrifice.
The easiest way to upset these pseudo-Master Race types is to mock them. The best defense against them is to make fun of them. It drives them insane, and all the can do is point-and-sputter and engage in ad hominem attacks.
Laughter will crumple their grandiosity every time.
